Hello everyone! I'm currently working on an arcade shooting game called Stompy 2: The Revenge, the sequel to Stompy. I've gotten to the point where I want to show off a demo of the game. You can download the demo here Controls: w - move up d - move right s - move down a - move left arrow keys - shoot in any direction Here is a screenshot of the game: Any feedback on the game would be appreciated.

Not bad! Good work Stompy. However, a few quirks.

1. Insta-die is a bummer [sad]. Perhaps a life counter or heath bar.
2. Lack of 'fun factor'. I know this is still a demo, and I'm not sure what you plan to add, so perhaps you can talk about that. I'd like to see power-ups to be able to shoot faster, or a system of different weapons, etc...
3. Monsters really blend in with your level tiles. Perhaps color changes can help identify them better and give the player more visuals to which ones they need to kill first.

Other than that, great progress so far! Keep it up

1. I plan to add a set number of lives. For instance, you'll probably start with 3 lives and than once you get a certain amount of points, you get an extra life.

2. The game will have different weapons to choose from, such as machine guns and shotguns which will fire in a spread. Also, the level in the demo is only one demo, where as the actual game should have about 5 different levels. Each level will have different types of enemies and a different look.

3. I should probably change the robot enemies to be something other than the same grey as the floor. I didn't think it would be an issue, but if it is, I'll definetly change it.

Thanks for the feedback!

[grin] Well then, don't hesite to release that demo when done! Good luck! Oh and are you going to convert your resources into using a file system, or is it just going to be listed out like they are now? I think it'd be a good excersise if you have the time for a version 2 [wink]
